|Pretend there is no schmutz on my mirror, ok? We're out of paper towels and I didn't feel like cleaning it. If it bothers you that much, come on over. There is PLENTY to do around here.|
|Am still loving the hair. I even like the cute little flip it does on the end. No, I didn't train it to do that. My hair has a natural wave to it which I think is actually very cute.|
On my way to Mr. R's job so I can pick up some money. It's not a paycheck; it is an overage from his escrow. Our hot water heater is basically dead; we all take 5 minute showers and I pretty much can only shave one leg at a time without being blasted with icy cold water. I like cold weather, but I do not like cold showers. Blessedly, he has quite a bit of money in his escrow, so he called accounting and had them cut a check for $2000 for me to pick up. Now, hot water heaters do not cost $2000. They are at best about $300 for the old style ones, and about $700 for the tankless, which is what we'd prefer. So I'm basically going to pick up the money, deposit it, buy groceries and then leave the rest for when Mr. R comes home (possibly Saturday night?) so he can start calling plumbers to see if they install the newer ones. I don't call service people; we've discovered that prices are significantly less if the man calls instead of the woman; I find it quite disgusting that there are still people trying to take advantage of women for home repairs and such. So I've opted out in making phone calls. Plus, I'm on the phone 24/7 for work and don't want to call anyone, anyway.
Plus...discovered yesterday that I need the 2011 coding books to take my coding exam this Saturday. Mine, of course, are the 2010 books. The rule just changed this week, and my office doesn't have a new coding book. I called the coding department where I interned; they don't buy books anymore, they use all online sources. I'm hoping Herzing can come through with a book for me to borrow for Saturday. If not, I have to buy the book which is about $150. Ai yi yi.
